When Alex and I happened to pop in Singapore again for a few days, and we didn’t want to spend all our time in the downtown, so we went for a bit rainforest hike at MacRitchie Reservoir TreeTop Walk.
We arrived at MacRitchie by bus (Flame Tree Park bus stops) and started our trail from the main entrance. The trail is mostly flat and easy to walk. It’s around 3.5 km one way to the TreeTop Walk. We walked around 7-8 km for 3-4 hours to get in and out, just wasn’t in rush.
There were a lot of squirrels, birds, lizards and monkeys along the way! The Monkeys mostly just live their life, and didn’t care or bother us. Only the monkey at the stairway after at the end of the TreeTop Walk bridge. She just came closer and closer, acting like a mafia, checking if we got any food to mug.
Acting like a mafia? Threatening us with angrily grinning and jumping harshly to us, but sorry, you missed! We ran away and never looked back…
The weather was hot and very humid there, but we kept walking, and the reward was the stunning and refreshing vistas of greenery over 25 m above the ground and 250 m long bridge. Not only views from the bridge but there were always some “enchanted forest scenes” during the way.
After crossed the bridge, to get out, we walked along the way down to the MacRitchie Reservoir, there was other fascinated sceneries.
We kept walking until the way out to Opp SICC bus station 100 m away on the opposite site of the road to take a bus back to town.
We love taking a bus in Singapore, it’s easy and never busy at all.
